The weekend storm was not only stronger than expected, but it took a path farther west of Colorado putting the Front Range region in stronger and much more persistent easterly upslope flow than had been expected. Many areas got on the order of 6 inches. In and along the lower foothills of Boulder County seemed to be the sweet spot where up to 15 inches fell. The Boulder Climate Station had 13.4″ of snow which contained 0.68″ of liquid.
For those who love snow, you had a pleasant surprise. For those who don’t, dry weather will rule this week after some Monday morning flurries. A return of afternoon temperatures in the 50s will be in place by Wednesday, so the snow will soon be history.
The next cold front and chance for snow is lurking for this weekend.
